Fowler v. Adams - 400 U.S. 1205 (1970)
U.S. Supreme Court
Fowler v. Adams, 400 U.S. 1205 (1970)
Fowler v. Adams
Decided August 11, 1970
400 U.S. 1205
Applicant, who was denied a ballot place as a congressional candidate in the September 8, 1970, primary election in Florida because of his refusal to pay the filing fee required by state law, has applied for injunctive relief against a three-judge Federal District Court judgment rejecting his contentions that the law is unconstitutional. Since the equities of granting the requested relief favor the applicant, Florida is directed to have his name placed on the ballot without payment of the filing fee.
See: 315 F.Supp. 592.
